Description

2 Overview

Overview

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) IP Performance Metrics (IPPM) working group
has defined standards for performance metrics to support the configuration and maintenance of
IP networks. These performance metrics test the performance of end-to-end (E2E) Ethernet links
and improve the interoperability between transmission and test devices.
Huawei has developed the IP Active Performance Measurement feature in accordance with the
IETF IPPM standards listed in the following table.
Protocol Number

Name

RFC5357

A Two-way Active Measurement Protocol (TWAMP)

RFC2680

A One-way Packet Loss Metric for IPPM

RFC2681

A Round-trip Delay Metric for IPPM

RFC3393

IP Packet Delay Variation Metric for IP Performance Metrics (IPPM)

This feature supports IP performance detection on connections between wireless network


elements (NEs) and devices that support TWAMP in a radio transport network. The performance
metrics include packet loss rate, round-trip delay, and delay variation. For details about these
performance metrics, see section 3.3 TWAMP Measurement Parameters.
IP performance detection can be performed on connections between eNodeBs, between a GSM/
UMTS dual-mode base station and a base station controller, between an eNodeB and a serving
gateway (SGW), between base station controllers, between a base station controller and a core
network (CN), between a wireless NE and a transmission device (for example, a router), and
between a wireless NE and a test device.
This document focuses on RFC5357: A Two-way Active Measurement Protocol (TWAMP).

2 Overview

2.1 Description
2.2 Benefits
The IP Active Performance Measurement feature reduces maintenance costs using the following
functions:
l

Network performance monitoring


In scenarios in which the transmission rate is unstable and the transmission bandwidth
dynamically changes, this function can detect the quality of service (QoS) of the transport
network so that operators can quickly troubleshoot network problems and take measures,
such as capacity expansion and network optimization.

Transmission fault diagnosis


Quickly locates and isolates transmission faults, such as a high packet loss rate or a long
delay, using TWAMP.
Troubleshoots a transport network on a per segment basis by measuring round-trip
network performance between a wireless NE and a transmission device (such as an
intermediate router that supports TWAMP), thereby improving network maintainability
and reducing maintenance costs.

TWAMP testing uses User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packet injection, which generates traffic
in the transport network and therefore occupies some bandwidth. For example, if 80-byte packets
are continuously sent at a rate of 10 packets per second in a test stream, the bandwidth
consumption is 6.4 kbit/s.

Technical Description

3.1 Position of TWAMP in the TCP/IP Protocol Stack


Figure 3-1 illustrates the position of TWAMP in the TCP/IP protocol stack.
Figure 3-1 Position of TWAMP in the TCP/IP protocol stack

TWAMP resides above IP segmentation and reassembly at the network layer, as shown in Figure
3-1.
In accordance with TWAMP, this feature measures the transmission quality at the IP layer. If
the local end (a wireless NE) serves as the Control End, it sends test packets before performing
IP segmentation. If the local end (a wireless NE) serves as the Response End, it performs IP
reassembly before responding to the received test packets.
NOTE

The Local TWAMP protocol version is RFC5357. It is recommended that the local and peer TWAMP
protocol versions be the same.

3.2 Basic Concepts


3.2.1 Measurement Model
TWAMP defines the measurement model, as shown in Figure 3-2.
Figure 3-2 TWAMP measurement model

TWAMP architecture is composed of four logical roles: Session-Sender, Session-Reflector,


Control-Client, and Server.
TWAMP defines two protocol packet types: control packets and test packets.
The Control-Client and server are TWAMP-control hosts, responsible for exchanging control
packets to initiate, start, and stop TWAMP test sessions.
The Session-Sender and Session-Reflector are TWAMP-test hosts, responsible for exchanging
test packets for testing. The Session-Sender sends test packets to the Session-Reflector and the
Session-Reflector responds to the test packets.
In application, TWAMP merges different logical roles on the same host for easier
implementation. For example, as shown in Figure 3-3, there could actually be two hosts: one
(Controller) playing the roles of Control-Client and Session-Sender, and the other (Responder)
playing the roles of Server and Session-Reflector.
Figure 3-3 TWAMP measurement entities

The Controller actively sends packets, collects measurement information, and provides related
statistics.

IP Active Performance Measurement Feature Parameter
Description

3 Technical Description

The Responder passively responds to received packets.

3.2.2 Measurement Process


TWAMP measurement includes negotiation and testing. Negotiation is conducted between the
Control-Client and Server using Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) packets. The Server uses
the fixed port port 862. Testing is conducted between the Session-Sender and Session-Reflector
based on the UDP. Ports used by the UDP are assigned and managed internally among NEs and
negotiated during the negotiation process, as shown in Figure 3-4.
Figure 3-4 TWAMP negotiation process

The measurement process includes four phases: TCP connection setup, creating test sessions,
starting test sessions, and testing, as outlined below:
Phase 1: TCP connection setup
1.

The Control-Client opens a TCP connection to the Server on the fixed port 862 on the
Server.

2.

The Server responds with a Server-Greeting message, indicating its supported mode of
communication.

3.

The Control-Client responds with a Set-Up-Response message with its chosen mode of
communication. However, if the Server does not respond or responds with an unexpected
mode of communication, the Control-Client closes the connection.

4.

The Server responds with a Server-Start message, indicating the test start time. The
connection setup is complete.

Phase 2: Creating test sessions


Issue Draft A (2014-01-20)

Huawei Proprietary and Confidential


Copyright Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

SingleRAN
IP Active Performance Measurement Feature Parameter
Description

3 Technical Description

The following commands are available for the Control-Client: Request-TW-Session, StartSessions, and Stop-Sessions. The Server can send the following messages in response to the
commands it receives: Accept-Session, Start-Ack, and Stop-Sessions.
In this phase, the test negotiation starts.
1.

The Control-Client sends a Request-TW-Session message to negotiate with the Server for
the UDP transmit port number, UDP receive port number, IP address, and differentiated
services code point (DSCP).

2.

The Server responds with an Accept-Session message, indicating whether it accepts the
negotiated results. The Server can respond with a different UDP port number that it will
allow the Control-Client to use. The Control-Client receives the port number and enters the
next phase.

Phase 3: Starting test sessions


1.

The Control-Client sends a Start-Session message, indicating that it starts a test session.

2.

The Server responds to the test session with a Start-Ack message, indicating whether it
accepts the test session.

Phase 4: Testing
Testing is carried out using UDP packets. The Session-Sender actively inserts test packets for
the Session-Reflector's response. The inserted test packets are transmitted in a fixed stream with
the same Session-Sender IP address, Session-Reflector IP address, source UDP port number,
destination UDP port number, and DSCP.
The test packets are transmitted in unauthenticated mode, authenticated mode, or encrypted
mode.
l

In unauthenticated mode, neither shared keys nor hashed message authentication code
(HMAC) keys are authenticated.

In authenticated mode, the public key must be authenticated.

In encrypted mode, negotiation packets and test packets must be encrypted.

Currently, this feature supports only unauthenticated mode.

3.3 TWAMP Measurement Parameters


TWAMP actively inserts test packets on links being tested and calculates the packet loss rate,
delay, and delay variation based on fields contained in the test packets.
Figure 3-5 describes the test process.
1.

The Session-Sender sends test packets filled with sequence numbers and timestamp T1.

2.

The Session-Reflector records timestamp T2 upon receiving the test packets from the
Session-Sender. The Session-Reflector copies the packet sequence numbers and timestamp
T1 extracted from the received packets into the corresponding reflected packets to the
Session-Sender. The corresponding reflected packets also include the Session-Reflector's
transmit sequence numbers and timestamp T3.

3.

The Session-Sender records timestamp T4 upon receiving response packets from the
Session-Reflector and then calculates the number of received packets.

3 Technical Description

Figure 3-5 TWAMP test process

This feature enables the Session-Sender to send packets periodically at an interval of 10 ms to


1000 ms and randomly within a period ranging from 10 ms to 1000 ms. All these can be set in
the TWAMPSENDER managed object (MO).
NOTE

This feature enables test packets to be sent based on quintuples consisting of the source IP address,
destination IP address, DSCP, source UDP port number, and destination UDP port number.
TWAMP requires the Session-Reflector to send a response packet to the Session-Sender in response to
each test packet it receives as soon as possible.
TWAMP defines negotiation timeout and test timeout for the Responder, which can be set in the
SERVWAIT(BSC6900,BSC6910,NodeB) and REFWAIT(BSC6900,BSC6910,NodeB) parameters,
respectively.
l ServWait: The Server closes the connection during negotiations if it has not received any negotiation
packet within the period specified by the SERVWAIT(BSC6900,BSC6910,NodeB) parameter. The
SERVWAIT(BSC6900,BSC6910,NodeB) parameter is configurable and its default value is 900s.
l REFWAIT(BSC6900,BSC6910,NodeB) parameter. The REFWAIT(BSC6900,BSC6910,NodeB)
parameter is configurable and its default value is 900s. When a base station or base station controller
serves as the Controller, it reinitiates negotiations if it has not received any test packets from its peer
end within 900s during the test. This is because the base station or base station controller assumes that
the peer end may have deleted the session.

3.3.1 Packet Loss Rate


The packet loss rate indicates the transmission quality of a detected IP link. This feature divides
the number of lost packets by the number of transmitted packets to obtain the packet loss rate
in a measurement period. The number of lost packets is calculated based on the numbers of
packets transmitted and received by the Session-Sender and those transmitted by the SessionReflector.
The calculation formulas are as follows:
Forward packet loss rate = (Number of packets transmitted by the Session-Sender Number of
packets transmitted by the Session-Reflector)/Number of packets transmitted by the SessionSender
Backward packet loss rate = (Number of packets transmitted by the Session-Reflector Number
of packets received by the Session-Sender)/Number of packets transmitted by the SessionReflector
NOTE

Forward: from Session-Sender to Session-Reflector


Backward: from Session-Reflector to Session-Sender

3 Technical Description

3.3.2 Round-Trip Delay


The round-trip delay is delay of packets transmitted back and forth between the Session-Sender
and Session-Reflector. The round-trip delay indicates the delay in a transport network.
This feature uses the following formula to calculate the round-trip delay:
Round-trip delay = (T2 - T1) + (T4 - T3) = (T4 - T1) - (T3 - T2)
where,
T1: time when the Session-Sender transmits packets
T2: time when the Session-Reflector receives packets
T3: time when the Session-Reflector responds with packets
T4: time when the Session-Sender receives response packets

3.3.3 Delay Variation


The packet delay variation indicates the difference between packet delays on a detected IP link.
The greater the fluctuations in delays, the greater the delay variation.
This feature calculates the packet delay variation based on the delays of two adjacent packets.
Forward delay variation: Difference between the forward delays of two adjacent test packets
Backward delay variation: Difference between the backward delays of two adjacent test packets
NOTE

TWAMP results may be inaccurate during router switchovers and active/standby Ethernet port switchovers.
The IP Active Performance Measurement feature supports active/standby board switchovers. If the local
end serves as the TWAMP Controller and experiences an active/standby board switchover, the local end
reinitiates a TWAMP negotiation and starts a test after the negotiation is successful. If the local end serves
as the TWAMP Responder and experiences an active/standby board switchover, the ongoing TWAMP test
will be affected and the local end will not respond to any tests.

4.1 Differences Between TWAMP and Huawei-Private IP


PM
TWAMP applies to the following interfaces:
l

GSM interfaces: Abis, A, and Gb

UMTS interfaces: Iub, Iu, and Iur

LTE interface: S1 and X2

The implementation principles for interfaces of different modes are the same. For details about
the implementation principles, see chapter 3 "Technical Description.".
For details about the base station and base station controller's TWAMP-related activation
commands and configuration parameters as well as test parameters that support TWAMP, see
sections 4.2 TWAMP Application on the Base Station Side and 4.3 TWAMP Application
on the Base Station Controller Side, respectively.
NOTE

TWAMP application to the co-MPT multimode base station is not discussed in this document because it
is the same as TWAMP application to the eGBTS, NodeB, and eNodeB.

TWAMP and Huawei-private IP performance monitoring (IP PM) have their own advantages
and disadvantages. The following paragraphs explain their differences from the technical and
application perspectives.

The Technical Perspective


TWAMP is a set of standards defined by the IETF and Huawei-private IP PM is a protocol
developed by Huawei. Table 4-1 explains their technical differences.

l Packet injection affects ongoing services


and occupies some bandwidth.
l The peer device must support TWAMP.

Huawei-private IP PM is used to monitor the QoS of transmission links for online services on
the user plane (UP).
TWAMP employs active testing by inserting test packets to test the QoS of E2E transmission
links. The test does not rely on service packets. Huawei-private IP PM tests E2E connections
between the base station and base station controller, while TWAMP tests the connections
between the base station and base station controller, or those between the base station/base station
controller and transmission devices in the transport network.
NOTE

Huawei-private IP PM measurement is based on four-tuples (source IP address, destination IP address,


UDP, and DSCP) or three-tuples (source IP address, destination IP address, and UDP). TWAMP
measurement is based on quintuples (source IP address, destination IP address, source UDP port number,
destination UDP port number, and DSCP).

The Application Perspective


TWAMP and Huawei-private IP PM are complementary. When there are ongoing services,
Huawei-private IP PM is recommended for testing connections between the base station and
base station controller, and between the eNodeB and Huawei SGW, and TWAMP is
recommended for testing connections between the base station/base station controller and
transmission devices in the transport network.
TWAMP actively simulates service packets to measure the following:
l

Transmission counters when a base station fails to provide services but the connection
between the base station and transport network is in good condition

Transmission counters when there is no traffic or the traffic is light

Connections between devices that support TWAMP

The UDP loopback function affects TWAMP testing. If one TWAMP test end is enabled with
the UDP loopback function and specified IP addresses or all IP addresses use the same IP address
that is used for TWAMP testing, the test packets will be directly looped back, resulting in
inaccurate statistics. If the base station functions as the TWAMP Controller, the peer Responder's
response packets will be looped back. As a result, the UDP packets are retransmitted between
the local end and peer end (Responder), which increases network resource consumption.

6 Network Impact

Network Impact

6.1 System Capacity


Because TWAMP negotiation packet interaction occurs in the protocol stack and only a small
number of packets are involved, TWAMP has negligible impact on CPU performance.
TWAMP test packets affect the user plane (UP) forwarding performance because they are
transmitted and received on the UP. The greater the transmit rate of test packets, the greater the
resource consumption of TWAMP forwarding. However, TWAMP forwarding resource
consumption still has negligible impact when compared with the base station and base station
controller's forwarding capabilities.

6.2 Network Performance


TWAMP testing uses packet injection, which generates traffic in the transport network and
therefore occupies some bandwidth. The bandwidth consumption is related to the transmit rate
of test packets. Users can specify the transmit interval and packet length for the packets to be
transmitted.
In maintenance and testing scenarios, if you are not sure whether the transmit rate (determined
by the IP path, resource group, and port) on transmission links is close to the planned bandwidth,
transmitting a small number of packets at an appropriate interval (low-traffic) is recommended
for a TWAMP test. For example, if 80-byte packets are continuously sent at a rate of 10 packets
per second in a test stream, the bandwidth consumption is 6.4 kbit/s.
In monitoring scenarios, it is recommended that you reserve bandwidth for the TWAMP test so
that involved packets can be sent continuously. If 80-byte packets are sent at a rate of 10 packets
per second in a test stream, the bandwidth consumption is 6.4 kbit/s. You can monitor the test
stream to check whether any transmission faults are occurring.

Using the CME to Perform Batch Configuration


The eGBTS/NodeB/eNodeB supports using the CME to perform batch configuration on the
TWAMP Controller function and TWAMP Responder function.
TWAMP is enabled after a device functions well. Batch reconfiguration using the CME is the
recommended method to activate IP Active Performance Measurement on base stations. This
method reconfigures all data, except neighbor relationships, for multiple eGBTSs/NodeBs/
eNodeBs using a single procedure. The procedure is as follows:
Step 1 Choose CME > Advanced > Customize Summary Data File from the main menu of an U2000
client, or choose Advanced > Customize Summary Data File from the main menu of a CME
client, to customize a summary data file for batch reconfiguration.
NOTE

For context-sensitive help on a current task in the client, press F1.

7.7 Troubleshooting
7.7.1 Checking Alarms
If the local end serves as the Controller, an NE reports alarms listed in Table 7-10 when a
TWAMP negotiation fails.
After the TWAMP Controller function is enabled on the local end, the local end starts
negotiations with the TWAMP Responder. If the negotiations are unsuccessful for four
consecutive minutes, alarms listed in Table 7-10 are reported.
During normal measurements, if the CP transmission is not restored in 11 minutes after being
interrupted, the local end reinitiates negotiations. Again, if the negotiations are unsuccessful for
four consecutive minutes, alarms listed in Table 7-10 are reported.
During normal measurements, if all the tests of the Control-Client are interrupted on the UP and
the local end receives no test packet responses from the peer end for 15 consecutive minutes,
the local end reinitiates negotiations. In this case, if negotiations are unsuccessful for four
consecutive minutes, alarms listed in Table 7-10 are reported.

l If the cause is transmission interruption, unavailable routing, incorrect configuration of


the peer IP address, the Responder cannot receive any TCP negotiation packets. In this
case, check Number of TCP Setup Request Packets Received.
l If the local TCP resources, such as ports, are limited, any TCP connection establishment
attempts will be rejected. In this case, check Number of TCP Rejection Packets
Sent.
l If the local end does not accept the mode of communication requested by the peer end,
the local end replies with a NAK message in response to the received Set-Up-Response
message. In this case, check Number of Set-up-response Rejection Packets.
l If the local UDP resources, such as ports, are limited, the local end replies with a NAK
message in response to the received Request-TW-Session message. In this case, check
Number of Request-TW-Session Rejection Packets Sent.
l If the peer end stops the test, the local end receives a Stop-Session message. In this case,
check Number of Stop-Session Packets Received.
If the local end serves as the TWAMP Controller, run the DSP TWAMPCLIENT and
DSP TWAMPSENDER commands to check the negotiation status and the negotiation
failure cause, if any.
For a base station:
l If the cause is transmission interruption, unavailable routing, incorrect configuration of
the peer IP address, the Controller cannot establish TCP connections. In this case, check
whether Negotiation Failure Cause is TCP_LINK_DOWN.
l If the peer TCP resources, such as ports, are limited, any TCP connection establishment
attempts will be rejected. In this case, check whether Negotiation Failure Cause is
Server internal error.
l If the local end does not accept the mode of communication requested by the peer end,
the local end replies with a NAK message in response to the received Set-Up-Response
message. In this case, check whether Negotiation Failure Cause is Server no
support.
l If the peer UDP resources, such as ports, are limited, the peer end replies with a NAK
message in response to the received Request-TW-Session message. In this case, check
whether Negotiation Failure Cause is Server resource limitation.
For a base station controller:
l If the cause is transmission interruption, unavailable routing, incorrect configuration of
the peer IP address, the Controller cannot receive any negotiation packets. In this case,
check whether Status Change Cause is Connection expired.
l If the peer TCP resources, such as ports, are limited, any TCP connection establishment
attempts will be rejected. In this case, check whether Status Change Cause is Server
internal error.
l If the local end does not accept the mode of communication requested by the peer end,
the local end replies with a NAK message in response to the received Set-Up-Response
message. In this case, check whether Status Change Cause is Mode unsupported.
l If the peer UDP resources, such as ports, are limited, the peer end replies with a NAK
message in response to the received Request-TW-Session message. In this case, check
whether Status Change Cause is Temporary resource limitation.
2.

Troubleshoot according to the related statistics on the TWAMP Responder end or the
negotiation failure causes on the TWAMP Controller end.

Step 1 Check the network connection if the peer end fails to respond in a specified time or does not
respond at all. If the network connection is normal, go to Step 2.
Step 2 Check whether the TWAMP functions are enabled on the peer end. If yes, go to Step 3.
Step 3 Check whether the negotiation failure cause is that resources on the peer end are limited. If yes,
re-enable the TWAMP functions.
Step 4 Check whether any transmission device prohibits the use of the ports required for the TWAMP
functions, as described in Table 7-4.
----End

7.7.3 Capturing Packets


Step 1 Set Protocol Type to TCP and set Local IP Address, Peer IP Address, and the related port
numbers, as shown in Figure 7-1.
l If the local end serves as the TWAMP Controller, set both Local Port No and Peer Port
No to 862. The local port number can be queried by running the DSP TWAMPCLIENT
command.
l If the local end serves as the TWAMP Responder, set Local Port No to 862.
Figure 7-1 Setting Protocol Type, Local IP Address, Peer IP Address and port numbers

Step 2 Check the TCP packets sent between the local end and peer end. The messages are sent in the
following order: initial TCP-Connection, Server-Greeting, Set-Up-Response, Server-Start,
Request-TW-Session, Accept-Session, Start-Session, and Start-Ack. For details about the packet
format, see RFC 5357.
Step 3 Check whether the local end has transmitted the expected packets or has received the expected
packets from the peer end.
l If the local end has not received the expected packets from the peer end, check the network
connection.
